Music Minor

Program Overview

The music minor is offered to students who wish to continue studying music while pursuing a different major. The degree includes studies in music theory, history & literature, and ensemble performance with the opportunity to choose music electives that allow each student to customize their course of study.  The Music Minor is popular with non-music majors who wish to build upon pre-college music experiences, and also allows students who have no background in music the opportunity to broaden their university experience and engage with creative students and world-class faculty.
